Yalumba are smart operators when it comes to their vinous offerings and as well as making one of the country’s finest Viogniers, they also make this more affordable version from the upper reaches of the Eden Valley. It has a rich and opulent nose and so completely varietal with apricot and peach, a touch of citrus and a lift of spice. The mouthfeel is the key, showing Viognier’s trademark texture which is unctuous without being cloying. It finishes with a refreshing vein of acidity making it a perfect counterpoint for a creamy chicken dish.
Apricot fruit aromas and flavours with long luscious texture and hints of orange oil to finish. Pure aromas reminiscent of fresh apricots, lifted ginger and fresh white flowers. The palate is long, rich and luscious, with intense stone fruit flavours finishing with an alluring citrus freshness. This wine will continue to grow and develop in the bottle, firstly showing enhanced apricots and spice, then after a couple of years developing honey flavours and toast complexity. A wonderful food wine - try it with Moroccan Tajine with spiced cous cous. Vegan friendly.
